The Last Dragon (1985)

by sunnykimmy

The Last Dragon is about a guy who is trying to acquire the final level of martial arts mastery which is known as "the glow". In order to do so he is supposed to find 'The master'.

I love this movie because it focuses on the mental aspect of martial arts. On facing and overcoming your fears. And realizing your own inner power and potential.

My favourite and I think the most important part of the movie is when the lead in the movie(Leroy) is fighting a strong opponent (who has the glow) and is almost defeated. The opponent keeps repeating "I am the master" until at some point Leroy is almost drowned by him but when he sees his reflection in the water he realizes that He is the master and that what he was searching for was inside of him all along. Then he defeats his opponent.

Thanks sunnykimmy for a great review of The Last Dragon - and of course you are right the mental strength you gain through practicing martial arts is the most important aspect of your training.

Thanks again Deb :-)
